obama told benjamin netanyahu that he understands israel's right to self-defense in light of countless rocket attacks on israeli civilians being launched from gaza. the president urged that prime minister netanyahu make every effort to avoid civilian casualties. do we think this administration has were leverage in making sure that happens? >> i mean, the israelis really feel that they have gone too far. they simply could not hold back from defending themselves because of the hundreds of attacks. trying to stop that, trying to tell israel not to defend itself is really impossible, but that said, the danger of this, of course escalation and all-out war is really very high. that's why this administration is trying to, you know, urge both sides to stop. it's obviously not being very successful. >> you know, tony blair has put a lot of political capital in this trying to come up with a peace agreement for the middle east. he spoke about this recently, what he sees is happening. i want to play a little bit for you. >> the single thing that's most important straight away is to try and calm th

the discussions of the time lines, what is also clear that it took the obama white house more than a week to publicly say that it was terrorism. so you do have this discrepancy. the cia director saying it was terrorism, really right out of the gate but the white house having this lag of eight days, bill. bill: a specific question here. answer it as best as you can. what do we believe general petraeus thought that anti-muslim film contributed specifically now to what was happening in benghazi? do we know officially yet how he believes the film either played a part or did not play a part? >> we don't know from the readout from lawmakers outside of that hearing this morning but, i would pay particularly attention to what we just heard from the ranking member. several lawmakers have now described how the first attack seemed more disjointed. not very coordinated as these militants overran the consulate. and the second attack on the cia annex seemed to have much more command-and-control. it was far more organized. it had the use of mortars. mortars are an indicator of premeditation. there may w

, there is a mutually assured let's cool the rhetoric on that down right now because it is not helpful toward moving toward a deal. but it is a big underlying concern. when president obama goes to asia, in the coming week, a lot of asian nations who are concerned about china's rise are concerned about a sequestration particularly the automatic defense cuts that would take place. it is still a very real concern. there is on some gut level in d.c., a feeling of let's not even talk about this right now. nobody wants this to happen. >> correct me if i'm wrong but don't we have to deal with raising the debt ceiling again before too long. >> let's not talk about that either. there are so many things piling up that either have to happen by the end of the year or would kick in early next year or you know february doesn't seem like that far away, right. so there are a number of things that are in some way daisy chained together as part of these negotiations. >> we're talking to margaret talev, white house correspondent for bloomberg new

what happened. i think that what we are dealing with right at this moment is a signal from senator mccain that they are not going to cooperate with the second administration of barack obama, that they are going to stall out all of his nominations. this is their warning shot that they are going to filibuster her appointment and perhaps anybody else's. i think that's what it is. and here is the intelligence committee member. >> again, i'm really confused. the only point in contention really is whether or not this attack emerged from a protest and as soon as the information became clearer and it did take some time for that to happen, then that was perfectly clarified. there is absolutely -- it's inconceivable to me for anybody to speculate there would be a deliberate misleading of the american people. why would there be? it's perfectly inconsequential al. there was a spontaneous demonstration and the terrorist groups organize niced to take tunistic advantage of it or not. in any case, there is no advantage to mislead the american people in that regard. i mean you have to have motivati
